Consistory Shines in Chicago
October 10, 2014
Massachusetts Consistory traveled to the Valley of Chicago the weekend of September 20 to perform the 23°, Prince of Libanus, also known as the Woodchoppers Degree. The degree was performed for the annual meeting of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction's Membership Committee. It was attended by the Membership Committee Chairman and their representatives of 83 valleys. The degree was directed by Bro. David R. Lucas, 32º, and produced by Ill. William E. Holland, 33º, MSA.
Why the Valley of Boston?
October 05, 2014
Once a man has made the decision to become a member of Scottish Rite, his next question becomes: which Valley do I join? Many men will often want to belong to a Valley that is close to home or has their friends and family in it. Others will be attracted to a Valley based on its history, brotherhood, and philanthropic activities. If you come across a brother who is looking to join Scottish Rite but is unsure about which Valley, make sure you speak highly of the Valley you proudly belong to.

Share the Light
September 25, 2014
With any venture we undertake in our lives, we must ask questions to become more knowledgeable before taking that first step. We all did so when deciding to join Freemasonry and Scottish Rite. Sharing the light of Scottish Rite Freemasonry is something we all should strive towards, but being able to answer questions may not be the easiest. Here are some questions that often come up about Scottish Rite and easy responses that help any Master Mason learn more about the twenty-nine degrees.
Membership Committee Gets a New Chair
September 22, 2014
As many a mason will tell you, membership is the lifeblood of any organization. It takes a certain set of skills to perform the duties of the Membership Chairman. Scottish Rite is pleased to welcome Dr. Alfredo Canhoto on as the Chairman of the Valley of Boston’s Membership Committee. Bro. Canhoto will be taking the reigns as Bro. David Narkunas steps down and pursues his education in law. A big thank you is due to David for all of the effort put into the Membership Committee of the past year…

Using SPAM for Recruitment
October 15, 2014 to November 01, 2014
We all know that membership is the lifeblood of any organization. Successful and efficient recruitment is a challenge that takes work, determination and enthusiasm. This is why it can be a challenge for some to broach the topic of Scottish Rite to a brother and receive positive results.
A great tool to use for membership development has been a staple in the United States since the 1930s. If we can introduce SPAM to our brothers in blue lodge, we can show them the...Read more...
